Compress Avi TV series -> DVD Christmas Gifts
What are the best compression utilities to squeeze as many episodes possible onto DVDs?
I've got a Winders box chugging away,
but my more powerful boxes are running a few 'nix flavors...
& Merry Christmas & Hanukah!

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Assuming you want a DVD that will play in a normal TV-DVD player, then you have to first convert them to mpeg2 format for DVD playback. I use ffmpeg for this, as inCode:
ffmpeg -i filename.avi -target ntsc-dvd -sameq -async 20 filename.mpg
As for how many episodes will fit on a DVD, it depends upon the length of the episodes and whether you are using a single-layer or double-layer disc. You should be able to fit 4-8 45 minute episodes on a DL (double layer) disc.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
